WV Gold Rush 2023

March 28, 2023 @ 8:00 am - April 8, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The West Virginia Gold Rush returns March 28 – April 8, 2023. For the sixth year in a row, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources is planning statewide stockings of the Mountain State’s very own golden rainbow trout. This fish, while native to West Virginia, is a prized catch among anglers. Every spring, we take to our lakes and streams and stock over 50,000 golden trout to give anglers from across the country a chance to reel in this prized catch.

Watoga Lake at Watoga State Park

Cranberry River 

Seneca Lake at Seneca State Forest

Williams River

Elk River

Greenbrier River in Durbin
